Dear InfraGard Los Angeles Members, Partners and Donors,
There is a lot happening in the world that requires a mechanism for the FBI and their partner agencies to provide accurate, concise and timely threat-based information and training. Your individual and collective volunteerism has made InfraGard Los Angeles the premiere outreach program in the nation. With over 3600 vetted members in our chapter, each of our 19 sectors are fortunate to have the right leadership to ensure your industries remain engaged.
COVID 19 is the current and greatest challenge to our nation today and foreseeable future. It has brought our economy and health care to their virtual knees and opened real and virtual doors to criminals and terrorists to exploit every aspect of our lives. InfraGard L.A. Leadership, Private Sector Coordinator (PSC), Analysts, FBI L.A. Division, JRIC (Joint Regional Intelligence Center), OCIAC (Orange County Intelligence Assessment Center) are collaborating to ensure you receive the most current, relevant and timely products and media driven awareness products to your respective sector, industries and companies.
At the beginning of the lock down, InfraGard L.A. stood up the InfraGard L.A. Sector Chief – COVID Task Force to support health care, 1st responders and front-line workers with PPE and discuss sector specific threats and actions. This insight to sector vulnerabilities is important to FBI and their partner agencies for efforts in mitigation and response to local threats via daily awareness program deliverables directly to members via the InfraGard L.A. Daily Brief. As a publication to thousands of members and representatives across our 44,000 sq. miles of responsibility, the Daily Brief also includes health department links of all seven counties we serve.
InfraGard L.A. pivoted training to an online format within 72 hours of the initial shut down. This virtual training has garnered tremendous attendance from members and law enforcement partners and may be included in future trainings in addition to the person to person meetings that promote networking between members. We welcome your feedback on our virtual training! Please email us at INFO@INFRAGARDLOSANGELES.ORG to let us know how we are doing!
Stay Safe – Stay Healthy!

FBI Los Angeles Division
85% of America’s critical infrastructures and key resources (CIKR) are owned by the private sector, but law enforcement is charged with protecting them in order to keep our country functioning. The need for a partnership between CIKR stakeholders and law enforcement is obvious and critical. lnfraGard Los Angeles provides a vehicle for that partnership through a trusted forum for the exchange of information pertinent to CIKR protection. InfraGard members operate in all 16 DHS Critical Infrastructure Sectors as well as Los Angeles region-specific ones.
